Kingdom Hearts Speedrunner Completes Almost Every Kingdom Hearts Title in a 28-Hour Marathon

The Kingdom Hearts franchise has a reputation for having a considerable number of entries, which more often than not acts as a barrier for prospective fans. Yet, an absolutely proficient speedrunner for the series, known as Ninten, has marathoned the majority of the Kingdom Hearts titles available on PlayStation 4, in 25 hours and 24 minutes. Needless to say, this is an incredibly impressive outing, and it clearly shows the level of dedication and fortitude this speedrunner has.

Ninten tweeted, “After 25 hours I finished every game in the kingdom hearts series (excluding the UX movie in 2.8 and khmom)! I might try this again in the future and play days/recoded as opposed to watching the movie, but I’m okay with how this marathon went.”

The only two PlayStation 4 titles that Ninten did not include in that time frame are Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, and the recently released Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory. The former is an extremely brief cutscene movie, so him not going through that does certainly make sense. He did go through the cutscene movies for both Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and Kingdom Hearts: Recoded, though, so props to him for managing that.

However, Ninten did also go on to complete the World Tour Mode of Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory in the latter half of that same stream, making the complete time for this marathon a whopping 28 hours and 58 minutes.

Once again, to say I’m impressed is an understatement. Not everyone has the capacity to game to this extent so congratulations to Ninten for managing such a magnificent feat.

You can watch the stream on Twitch.
